INST 3010 - Telling Community Stories for the Common Good

Hours: 3
Through a service learning partnership with an agency in an urban community in Columbus, exploring the relationship between journalists and communities, community organizers and journalists, and all citizens, by understanding the theory and practice of “civic journalism.” Advocacy journalism strives to provide readers/audiences with what they need to be responsible citizens rather than defining social issues as “problems to be solved.” This approach is more likely to promote a community and “restore it,” using techniques common to public relations, such as focusing on agency-centered storytelling.
Prerequisites: Junior standing or above, and a minimum of one course from at least four of the following INST threads: 2000, 2200, 2400, 2600, and 2800.
